  • My C8 is Attracting unwanted negative attention

    I was driving on our local thruway (190) a two lane highway between both GI bridges (for those that read this who are local), going 65 mph in a 65 mph speed zone. Wasn’t driving erratically, or intimidatory, just driving normal and enjoying the fall sunshine. Suddenly, a black late model Chrysler 300 C, cut me off, sped ahead of me, then immediately slammed on their brakes to a full stop. This shocked me, as it would for anyone driving regardless of model of car. He then drove maybe 100 feet, then immediately stopped once again to a full and complete stop. After looking in their driver side mirror at me and my reaction which basically was *** —————, he proceed to take off like a rocket. Since, I had failed to observe his license plate #, until I had his license plate in clear view at which point, I contacted my local Sheriffs Office, identified who I was, and the car I was driving, and more importantly, identified the butthead driving the 300 C.

    Gentleman & Ladies of the MECF, I’ve no idea what this persons’ goal was, as I was driving with traffic, and not like a yahoo like this **** but, using deductive logic, I’m guessing he was hoping for either a rear end collision, that’s the only conclusion I can come too or he was hoping for a bad wreck so he’d die.

    Be careful out there and watch out for the road **** rejects!

    He may have just been trying to get you to rear end him for insurance , regardless of what you were driving.

      Agreed…but thanks to the C8’s tremendous stopping power, if that was indeed his goal, he failed miserably 😁

            Plentyfast I failed to mention the “carry” aspect. As I’m always “carrying” it goes without saying however, you were correct in that I unholstered it from its under seat holster. I don’t usually mention that on this forum as I “try” to stay to the subject matter at hand. Try.

              Those would have been my exact steps and one I would highly recommend to anyone.

              I'm not Toto and I don't live in Kansas, I'm 45 miles west from Chicago where Road Rage is serious business.

              Just keeping it real ...

                Great advise and I would add this that my academy instructor would say "Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6"

                  Scary situation, the world is literally going crazy. I had a similar situation in my C7 in 2014, my wife was terrified and I was somewhat confused. I am not a young Yahoo intimidating others with a fast car. I was 65 at the time and just taking a lovely Fall ride thru the Amish country in Pa. It is almost like you can not have something nice and enjoy it without a jealous individual wanting to ruin your day. Thanks for sharing, I hope you never have another encounter like this one.

                    Love #4

                    Just shows how valuable a full time dashcam or PDR will be. Glad you're okay. Hopefully he was just trying to show you up, not do you harm.

                    Down here in Texas, we just pull over and have a quick draw showdown. JK

                      Stay aimed in until the threat is gone or has been neutralized. 😜

                        I have always thought that a great option would be a 20mm front cannon.

                          Amen hogwld (love it)

                          This brings up a question from the C8 ignorant but soon to be owner (me). Can the C8's PDR camera be run (recording) all the time your driving or just while racing? The simcard could be VERY cheap insurance in court, God forbid

                              Sounds like a typical reaction from people who think that they were cut off in traffic.
